comprehensive coverage of this crisis in gaza. fred pleitgen is in ashkelon, ben wedemans in gaza city. ben wedeman, good morning, set the scene for me. >> reporter: yes, brooke, it was a noisezy night and we saw intense bombardment just behind where i'm standing. that was proceeded by increasing sort of mounting reports that a cease-fire was about to be announced or a period of calm. but it appears that there were problems within the israeli government that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his foreign minister lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minist

in environ research center. john: based in bozeman, montana. you folks city areas where private property can help protect animals. >> we believe that ownership provides the best incentives for conservation. john: most of the buffalo are owned by private ranchers, but there are still some in state parks or one state park. one has a roundup. >> and they are actually treating their bison most like private ranchers are, making them pay. what they do is once a year for 45 years they have this huge round with a bring in their 1500 bison. tourists come from all over the world among pay money to watch these bison get heard it, and all wild west fashion with cowboys and cowgirls, and the bison come sweeping down the planes. the earth shakes. they did move in the corrals, and we all go eat bison murders after words. the point is, the park is making money from the tourism. then about a month later they auction off a portion to private ranchers and they're also making money now wait. all that money goes back into custer state park to pay for operations of the park. so they're paying their own way. john:

. >> reporter: gaza city's deserted streets came back to life today. weapons on both sides fell silent as the fragile cease-fire held. after eight days of living in fear, thousands of palestinians gathered in the city square to show support for hamas. you can feel the sense of relief here on the streets of gaza city today that the fighting is over. but hamas is declaring this a celebration of victory. and despite more than a week of suffering, that's exactly how people here see it. imad told us this latest fight against israel has united palestinians. >> we have a great victory here in gaza okay. we imposed our conditions on them, okay, because we fight them. >> reporter: hamas' prime minister ismail haniyeh, put it this way: he said, "i want to say to the palestinian people in gaza that the option of invading gaza after this victory is gone and will never return." israel's leaders would dispute that, but today their soldiers were pulling back from the border with gaza. at the same time, the israeli army chief of staff benny gantzed a stark warning. >> if gaza will stay quiet, if nothi

? >> no country would tolerate rocket attacks against its cities and civilians. israel can't tolerate such a thing. >> i just got off the phone with the israeli ambassador to washington, michael orrin and he says right now, there is no agreement to a cease-fire in israel by the israelis in the gaza strip. >> we heard the escalation and we are hoping for restoration of calm and hoping for complications. >> i strongly caution against these ground operations. >> president obama asked me to come here with a clear message, america's commitment to israel is unwavering. that is why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. >> i can tell you the future of diplomacy here still remains very uncertain. what i can tell you for sure is that this air war did intensity. today alone. they fired more than 150 rockets into israel. >> it's a long term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means than israel would be a willing partner to such a solution. a stronger military action is necessary to stop the constant barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to
in the new york city area were locked in on those eyes too. >> yes. the northeast recovers from hurricane sandy new jersey governor chris christie is receiving praise for his handling of the storm. according to a quinnipiac university poll, 36% of new york city voters say christie did the best job responding to the disaster. 22% say president obama's response was strongest. not everyone is pleased with christie's performance. a "new york times" report suggests some republicans still resent the popular governor for doing his job. they say the governor's praise of the president hurt mitt romney's chance on election day. romney advisers refer to data showing a high number of undecided voters chose president obama at the last minute citing his handling of sandy as the major reason. >> come on, man. >> i want to say quickly about christie, how he's acting, what you're supposed to do running for president, him going on "snl" last weekend becoming part of the culture, being loose, making fun of himself is the complete opposite of what rubio is doing. that's the way you run for president. you don
? >> what are we learning? gosh, what we learned that sandy did quite a number on new york city, and now the damage estimates are tallied up and new york city's mayor michael bloomberg is asking the federal government for $9.8 billion, with a b, $9.8 billion to help in the recovery. follow me here. that's after starting with the city's total public and private losses which were estimated at $19 billion, and then you break that out, so about $4 billion was covered by private insurers, about $5 billion expected to come from fema and then come up with the $9.8 billion figure which is just part of the $30 billion aid package that new york governor andrew cuomo has requested. what mayor bloomberg has done, brooke, he sent a letter to the members of the new york state congressional delegation asking for this money, saying, new york city will struggle to recover in the long-term unless this money -- this federal funding is given. >> was he being specific as far as where in the city the money needs to go the most? >> yeah, you look at the letter, what bloomberg is essentially saying is that, loo
, survey damage in some of the areas and try to get their lives back to normal. in gaza city, tens of thousands of supporters of hamas and other palestinian factions that have been fighting over the past nine days came out to the streets in what is described as a victory rally. the leaders of hamas came out thanked the palestinian people for the steadfast support. they celebrated what they're describing as a victory for resistance over israel and say they're ready to do it again, if they need to defend their territory and people. importantly, the question on everyone's mind, how long will this cease-fire last? can it last? one of the fundamental issues that keeps coming up is whether or not there is going to be a comprehensive solution to the problems facing israel and the palestinian people. the people in gaza want to see an end to the siege. the people in southern israel want to see a calm and a cessation of rocket fire. these are some of the issues that negotiators who happen to negotiate the deal over the past 24 hours will now start to address for a long-term solution. if not,
for militants. when we visited the next day, we saw a devastated area the size of a city block. it was once the biggest government office in gaza city. >> this building for medical, for photo, for bank. where is the problem for israelis? >> reporter: the israeli military also launched sustained attacks on military targets in rafah in the southern gaza strip. yet hamas militants kept firing their rockets into israel, too, right up until the very moment the cease-fire took effect. and tonight, the once-empty streets of gaza city erupted-- not with explosions but with the sounds of cheering, fireworks and celebratory gunfire. >> glor: charlie d'agata joins us now from gaza city. charlie, i wonder if you can talk about this. how has the mood changed since this announcement? >> reporter: jeff, it's difficult to convey the sense of relief that we have here tonight. for the past week or so, this place has been a ghost town, and for the past 24 hours we've seen some of the worst fighting. and now what we're seeing is the streets are filled with people. they're driving up and down, they're waving pa
the repair for the state and new york city will top $32 billion. and the fallout continues at lipa, the long island utility company that's under fire for its slow response to the storm. another top executive and a board member have resigned. >>> and next door in new jersey, which suffered $30 billion in losses, governor chris christie just announced he is running for re-election. christie's won praise and newfound popularity with the handling of the storm. he will seek another term next year so he can continue leading the state through what is inevitably going to be a long recovery. >>> and a blast of wintry weather is slamming parts of the northeast this morning, creating a sloppy mess for millions of commuters. the storm is bringing snow to pennsylvania, new jersey and new york. that's going to be mixed with rain along the coast. it could delay school openings and bring traffic to a crawl during the morning rush. not what you want to hear this morning. >>> for the latest on the snow, let's turn to accuweather and meteorologist jim dickey, telling us exactly what we can expect. >> good morn
on tuesday. new york city voters gave christie higher marks than mayor bloomberg for handling the storm. a full 89% approved of his performance. if christie can get reelected with big numbers and popular enough to put blue states like new jersey in play, then the republican party, which is terrified by. its inability to speak to voters beyond its base, they will be begging christie to run. begging. if he wins, and he wins big, they are not going to be mad of the him for long. joining me now is msnbc's joy reid. how are you? >> i'm doing well. >> so much as i think they will one day come to forgive chris christie, watch how his recent visit to "saturday night live" played with eric bowles. >> let's look at the republican acting like a democrat governor chris christie slobbering a wet kiss on president obama's cheek with days until the election. then this curious appearance on "saturday night live" while jersey still suffers from power outages and massive job losses. >> slobbering wet kiss. do you think i'm underestimating this? >> i think it will take longer to heal. your theory is sound
in gaza city. arwa, what's the atmosphere like in gaza city, and is there a sense that hamas has strengthened its position through the last eight or nine days? >> reporter: there is to a certain degree if you look at the terms of the cease-fire. at the very least, it does state israel most open its border crossings. we don't know what it will translate to at this stage. but from the people we speak to here, they do feel that this time around, the israelis, yes, it was indirectly, but they were forced to come to an agreement via the mediator, versus four years ago. the mood on the street here earlier was one of celebration. some people celebrating the fact that they do view this as being a victory over israel as having stood up in the face of what they describe to be israeli aggression, but for others, it was celebrating the fact that after days of bombardment, they were able to just go outside. >> yes, you can see the pictures here of people looking jubilant, probably just getting out, as you say. when you look at the way this has played out particularly, clearly mohamed morsi pl
